Let’s talk design at Square.

What we believe. What we do.

Design at Square

“We don’t want to add things—we take things away to make them more simple.”


It all begins with design.

At Square, design is the driving force behind economic empowerment. Intuitive products are crucial to the businesses we serve, and to their success.

We believe in a world with room to dream.

We design products that help ideas become reality.

We believe everyone should have an opportunity to thrive.

And not be left out because the cost is too great or the technology too complex.

We make the complex simple.

We design products that deliver on complex needs without sacrificing ease of use. Quality is never compromised.

We create tools that empower people.

Tools that shorten the distance between having an idea and making a living from it.

Do the work, and work together.

Our designers are given autonomy as well as opportunities to mentor and be mentored. Everyone adds value to the team.

Build trust through transparency.

The customer experience is everything. Our tools are as honest and accessible as possible—they meet customers wherever they are.

Listen to users.

We listen to and learn from owners of businesses large and small. We understand their problems and anticipate their needs.

Empower sellers.

We help sellers perform with speed, scale responsibly, and gain insight into day-to-day operations.

We believe in being fair and square.

We’re building an inclusive economy where all sellers have equal access to opportunity. We strive to live by these same values in all our workplaces.
